Once again, the unseen Environment Minister Melissa Price has denied her own Government’s data which shows under the divided and chaotic Liberals pollution is rising and will continue to rise all the way to 2030.
When asked the simple question, “have emission gone up or down?” the Minister dismissed any responsibility saying she is “focused on the positives.”
Just last Thursday the Minister’s own Department showed pollution has risen by 0.9 per cent year to September 2018.
Yesterday climate scientist put out a statement lamenting the Liberals inaction saying, “Official government projections, international authorities (such as the OECD and the United Nations Environment Programme) and leading experts agree, Australia is not currently on track to achieve its emissions reduction target.”
The Minister is taking Australians for fools if she thinks rising pollution can be seen as a positive.
The Liberals have washed their hands of responsibility to future generations; instead, they have adopted Tony Abbott’s inadequate climate policy and plan to spend billions of taxpayers’ dollars on up to 10 coal-fired power projects.
